In several years of experience at Universidad Simón Bolívar I held positions from Undergraduate Teaching Assistant to Assistant Professor. I assembled the following portfolio to take stock of my taught courses, describe my teaching approach and give insight about what I have learned along the way.
Currently, I am part of the Electronics and Circuits Department, and my teaching area is oriented towards theoretical and experimental foundations of electronics for data acquisition systems. As responsible of core courses for senior level engineering students, my lessons cover a broad range of subjects – from the electrical translation of physical magnitudes up to their representation and processing in the digital world.
Additionally, I perform as co-instructor of the Spanish version of the MOOC “Learning How to Learn” offered by UC San Diego through Coursera, which offers useful tools to enhance the learning process by means of the latest research in neuroscience and cognitive behavior.
The exciting side of teaching is that after every course offering I discover new things to learn and new areas to improve, so I consider my portfolio – and my personal development – as a constant work-in-progress. More information about my work can be found on:
The interesting part of science is that it is an endless discovery driven mainly by curiosity and asking the right questions. As Hubble said:
Equipped with his five senses, man explores the universe around him and calls this adventure “Science”.
Despite being in permanent contact with technology, I find nature as the ultimate source of inspiration and fascination. As a famous author once wrote:
The simplest life form holds more secrets than the most advanced supercomputer.
This is the reason of my slight preference towards analog and power electronics – the underlying physical principles ruling our universe will never run out of date.
What I Teach ?
Currently, I am in charge of three courses oriented to fourth year students of the electronics engineering career at Universidad Simón Bolívar. Each course is suited for a three-month period that is meticulously scheduled in twelve weeks of activities.
EC3179 – Electronics for Industrial Control and Data Acquisition I
This course is oriented towards the translation of physical variables up to their representation in the digital world, with a focus in analog to digital and digital to analog conversion, sensors, signal processing and an introduction to digital electronics.
